It is good to see that merchants are holding Christmas parades and Christmas sales once again, rather than just sterile generic "Holiday" parades and sales. Let us hope our Christian friends resume their traditional celebrations during this joyous season. In these hard times, not only would that spread a little cheer among children, but it might just help the economy as well.

I agree. Spread the joy of the holidays, everyone will have better memories. They'll also get into the holiday mood and might spend more.

I too agree with you. It doesn't matter how hard they try, they'll never be able to take Christ out of Christmas.

Well Long Beach citizens, we are at the Christmas Parade time again and its time to stop an injustice from happening again to the less fortunate of our city. For anyone who has attended the Belmont Shore Christmas Parade on Second St. you know too well the rows and rows of UNATTENDED chairs lining the streets with various names on them, roped off in an attempt to RESERVE them for the elite and prevent those who need the Christmas joy most from seeing the event. Yes, the elite owners and clientele of the businesses that line Second St. have a system in place that they feel is right and just and charitable, but we all know its not. We have all witnessed young families with many children in tow, searching in vain for a seat to see the parade while passing dozens and dozens of roped off reserved chairs. If you agree that the parade should be for the children of Long Beach and the residents of Long Beach, who attend in time, NOT JUST THE ELITE make your voices heard. Either -- A) attend the parade and brazenly MOVE the empty chairs and take your seat on the curb. Dont worry there is nothing illegal with that and the police will not stop you. You may irritate a few business owners who think they also own the street, but know that they do not. Simply smile and wish them a Merry Christmas. OR -- B) dont attend the parade and call your councilperson and the mayor (562-570-6801) and the Belmont Shore Business Association (562-434-3066) and tell them how wrong this practice is. Make your voice heard in word and in lack of sales and support that night on Second St. Its time to take a stand against residents and business owners of Long Beach who obviously were raised without manners and dont understand the concept of first come, first served.
